#amreading Thirty Nothing by Lisa Jewell

One of my reading goals for 2013 was to re-read some of my older books gathering dust on my bookcase. The first one I chose was Thirty Nothing by Lisa Jewell. I love Lisa Jewell's books and, along with Jane Green's books, they started my love of chick lit. It's also my 30th birthday today so it seemed an apt choice.
I've read Thirty Nothing many times but I'm really enjoying getting to know Dig and Nadine all over again.

Ever wondered what happened to your first love?

Imagine bumping into them twelve years later and realizing you still fancy them rotten. That's exactly what happens to Dig Ryan when he sees Delilah again.

Now imagine you're Nadine. You and Dig have been best friends for fifteen years. And you've finally realized that you're in love with him. So when Delilah - who always was your nemesis - returns, you're mad with jealousy and can't help behaving childishly. Like phoning your first love Phil - just to get your own back ...

Thirty-Nothing is a story of ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends and friends dabbling with yesterday when they really should be thinking about today.

Do you re-read books? And what are you reading at the moment?


  1. I'm a compulsive re-reader. I can't help myself. I tried to give some books to a charity shop a couple of months ago (to make space) and couldn't find anything I wanted to get rid of.

    1. I have to be brutal with books because I don't have the space to store all my books in my tiny house. I'd love to have my own mini library (or so not so mini actually).

      I only kept 3 or 4 books from last year. The rest have been divided up to go to mum, sister, in laws and the book exchange at my daughters' school. It hurts.
